Wine Bar

“Not your typical "Bar". Very modern, very hip. You can treat yourself to their famous "Wine Slushies" or order a whiskey or wine flight. Very relaxed atmosphere and although they do not sell food (aside from cheese), you can bring in your own food!”

“This pizza joint is new and gives Chicago-style pizza (coming from someone who loves that kind) a run for its money. It is not deep dish, but all artisan, homemade. Great food. (Fantastic owners!)”
